Live Interview Wednesday, February 1st - Cable Green on "The Obviousness of Open Policy"

Join me Wednesday, February 1st, for a live and interactive webinar with Cable Green on "The Obviousness of Open Policy." The Internet, increasingly affordable computing, open licensing, open access journals and open educational resources provide the foundation for a world, Cable says, in which a quality education can be a basic human right. Yet before we break the "iron triangle" of access, cost and quality with new models, he argues that we need to educate policy makers about the obviousness of open policy: public access to publicly funded resources.

Date: Wednesday, February 1st, 2012
Time: 5pm Pacific / 8pm Eastern / 1am (next day) GMT (international times here)

Cable Green leads the Education projects at Creative Commons as Director of Global Learning. He mixes digital technologies, open licensing, standards and policies to significantly improve access to quality, affordable, open educational resources. Cable is a strong advocate for open policies that ensure publicly funded education materials are freely and openly available to the public that paid for them.

Previously, as Director of eLearning and Open Education for the Washington State Board for Community and Technical Colleges, he led a project to build and share highest enrolled courses under a CC BY license. They call it the “Open Course Library.”

He also served as the Director of Technology for the Ohio Learning Network and Director of Educational Technology for the Ohio State University College of Pharmacy where he built Ohio State’s first online doctoral program. He earned his PhD (educational technology) from Ohio State University, MA (communication) from Ohio State, MPC from Westminster College, and BS (international affairs) from Lewis and Clark College.
